Missy Cooper

Missy and Shelly

Shelly is the nickname for Sheldon used by his mother and his sister. This nickname was first mentioned by his mother during the "The Luminous Fish Effect".

Sheldon does not seem to like it when non-family members use this nickname. He tells Howard, "And don't ever call me Shelly." [1]

Used by Leonard to try and get him out of the ball pit in "The Einstein Approximation".

The only other exception is when Sheldon is on the phone to Zack, he says he is fine with being called Shelly.
